While most of my Aladtec experience is with public safety agencies, I cannot imagine an industry or service that would not benefit from an Aladtec system. Affordable, reliable, efficient and user-friendly - Aladtec offers a product that most companies simply can only dream about.

UKG Ready is easily accessible - I love that it's web based. No need to use the VPN network. This really helps managers when they are on vacation, but need to do work. It's also helpful for employees to have a streamlined view between the desktop at work and at home. The system in my opinion is pretty user friendly. I love the audit trails - it really helps you keep track of possible errors and find information that may have accidentally been deleted.

Pros

Aladtec

  • Aladtec allows easy access to forms, change orders and schedules from any device.
  • Aladtec offers the ability to see the schedule a month at a glance, by the week or day, with full detail of who is on the schedule; giving a bird's eye view of the openings and then able to see specifically who is on each daily schedule.
  • Aladtec offers the opportunity to put its recurring schedules and monthly choices and changes. It has several scheduling options that increase flexibility for employees.
Lynn DeLaurentis | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

  • Employee information. It is very helpful to be able to pull up one screen and see all the demographics. Also very easy to report on.
  • Time keeping. Access is great from employees to managers to HR. We can edit if someone needs to change time and push it through for them. Although we don't like to do this, I like to have the option. Very easy to see historical time as well.
  • Performance management. The tools set up is great even though we had some hiccups. I like the fact that we can build the tool to what our organization needs and have a few different ones for different populations. We did not use the merit increase tool as this was our first time doing online performance management but I'd like to use that feature this year.
  • Historical records. I appreciate when an employee leaves our organization that all the information remains for me to see, it doesn't just wipe them out of our system and make it more difficult to find. It's the same as pulling up an active employee which is easy.
  • Yearly training. I like that we can track when an employee took New Hire Training or other training that we offer. I think there is a better way for us to utilize this but we just haven't gotten around to it. Ideally, I'd love that when someone is a year old, that particular employee gets an automatic email. I haven't even looked into it, but perhaps that feature is already there.

Cons

Aladtec

  • The only item we would like to see is an online training module for our EMS staff. Being able to upload training items and quizzes for our staff to do under their user accounts would be a huge asset for our department and others. Similar to the Moodle training software.
  • No other issues to note.
Jeff Rixmann | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

  • While reporting is fairly robust it can be somewhat limited in that you cannot filter off custom fields and custom fields with what should be basic formulas can be hard to write.
  • Screens are limited to 200 lines where it would be more helpful to be able to see a complete list (ideally at least 500 to 1,000) rather than exporting to view a list.
  • The time clock can only personalized to a relatively small extent. It would be nice to have custom views, ability to change color schemes, etc.
  • Sometimes it takes multiple reports to complete a task. It would be nice if in addition to adding custom columns there could be custom subtotals that could be done on more than one column within the same report.

We plan to renew our support and use of UKG Ready each year unless it becomes unavailable or the district seeks another vendor. As of now, there are no plans to changes vendors. The district staff is now familiar with using UKG. Another vendor will need to meet the same expectations we have come to enjoy with using UKG

The usability would be better if there weren't constant changes. For example, changes were made to the Employee Information screen. Now instead of having everything presented in a clean, concise manner on approximately one screen, it is all boxier and bigger and involves a lot of scrolling. The same change has been made to the timesheet as well. The only saving grace is that there is a way to toggle back to the original view. Hopefully the toggle option remains because the new look did not go over well with our organization.

The system seems very stable. Being hosted in the cloud, we are vulnerable to internet speeds and busy times. The system has been down a couple times over the 3 months we have been live, but Kronos resolved the issues very quickly. To have access from a desktop, tablet, time clock, or phone app is one of the best features....users have almost NO REASON they can't clock in.

We were always told that Kronos was the best, but there are reports that we got out of ADP and other payroll providers that we cannot get out of Kronos. One example is a report of Productive/Non-productive hours by department. We also need the dollar amount associated with the hours. This is information that is required on our cost report and we were told that that report is unavailable. It is very frustrating when I can't get what I need.

Aladtec has given the support needed, especially in learning the new system and bringing it up to speed for the entire workforce. There is a need to reach out to them when everything freezes, which is rare. This system has been fairly smooth after it had been in use for at least 6 months.

The Kronos support staff is great! They are all very knowledgeable, are thorough when explaining or showing me how to fix something and very friendly to speak with over the phone. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because there are times when I just want to pick up the phone and ask a quick question but I have to start a case instead. The online help has been very useful because a lot of times I can find the answer to my question on my own

Our in-person training was a hybrid. Live online training with an instructor. They were very knowledgeable of the product & the area they were training on. I asked several specific questions and if they didn't know the answer immediately they followed up after class.

Lots & lots of training available. Timing was wrong for our organization. We had lengthy down time in the beginning while the implementation consultant setup our system. We did online training then. Difficult to train on a generic system setup that isn't your industry and hard to understand what you are learning how to do w/o actually being in your system. Online training was well documented and the instructors were very knowledgeable.

Make sure the people who are doing the build have extensive knowledge on employment law and asking the right questions. I would bet that the people who helped with our builds did not read any of our employment contracts or ordinances; and when I asked questions about how other companies handled certain basic dictates from federal employment laws, they didn't have any idea what FMLA, FLSA, etc were.

Alternatives Considered

Aladtec

The software as a service model is prefered over native software, which is one reason why we decided on Aladtec.
Caleb Branch | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

Kronos definitely beats out the competition in terms of user-friendly features and simple "it works" functionality. We tried using several other payroll suites including Paychex and found they were lacking in a number of areas especially in terms of user interface. Our employees literally groan when they remember using these older systems, they absolutely love Kronos in comparison.

Return on Investment

Aladtec

  • In the first 12 months of use we saved nearly 13x our investment in overtime alone. The following year we realized an average of 46 hours per week of time saved in workforce management.
  • We have seen no negative impacts from the use of Aladtec. Our only regret is not having it earlier.
Andrew Blackwood | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

  • Managers have easy access to people/hours/earnings to better manage budgets - once we implement Scheduler, we'll take it to the next level.
  • Managers and employees can self-serve in ways not possible before - we eliminated 95% of paper processes during our implementation.
